National Network for Children filed observations on the bill amending the Civil Code, which supports proposals to regulate possibility The Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC) to rule in civil cases parental and related rights.
Many parents and civil organizations sent negative opinions on changes to the Civil Procedure Code (CPC) adopted by National Assembly in June that remove the third court in matrimonial matters. Their arguments were that SCC is the court that is empowered to review the decisions of lower courts and thereby creating mandatory for them practice in the interpretation and application
right. The risk of diversified practice second instance courts is huge, which could lead to court
tourism, choice of court and other illegal practices.
We believe that provided for in the Bill for amending the Civil Code changes will contribute to raising
access to justice for a huge group of citizens, not depriving them of the ability to benefit from the best legal protection and guarantees the rights of children and their families.
